This paper provides a precise sense in which the time t map for the Euler equations of an ideal fluid in a region in R^n (or a smooth compact n-manifold with boundary) is a Poisson map relative to the Lie-Poisson bracket associated with the group of volume preserving diffeomorphism group. This is interesting and nontrivial because in Eulerian representation, the time t maps need not be C^1 from the Sobolev class H^s to itself (where s > (n=2) + 1). The idea of how this diculty is overcome is to exploit the fact that one does have smoothness in the Lagrangian representation and then carefully perform a Lie-Poisson reduction procedure.
